Hello, Dear Friends!
I hope that you are staying warm and dry, and finding safe haven
from the storms of life.
While trying to keep up spirits
during these short, cold winter days,
I made a list of favorite things ...
Crocuses peeking through the frosty ground
Moonlight on an empty road
Sharing a dream
Fog rolling in
Hearing someone say, "You're Welcome"
Sending thank-you notes
The sound of popping corn
Shadows at sunset
Singing to myself
The last page of a good book
Hugs from loved ones
I hope these make you smile and encourage you to
make your own happy list!

They have a one-note, reedy call that always prompts
a reply from another, all at a different pitch.
It's wonderful to hear on a quiet morning.
Aren't they pretty?
Our little grandsons came for a visit.
They are twins.
A frosty spiderweb.
We are almost halfway through winter, but already
the days are getting a little bit longer.
We've had a mild January here in western Washington state,
after a very cold and snowy December.
So many in this world have no shelter in the storm,
and those of us that do, realize it is only through grace that
we can even experience such a thing as 'Cabin Fever'.
So while I wait for spring, I count my blessings
while making the best of every single day.

the candle or the mirror that reflects it."

"Grace is available for each of us every day - our spiritual
daily bread - but we've got to remember to ask for it
with a grateful heart and not worry about whether there will
be enough for tomorrow."
